Re: virtual-playing-orchstra with Ardour on Ubuntu Studio 19.10

There is a bug in the template, it uses an absolute path. Replace the following with an absolute path to your template: template-dir="/Users/michaelwillis/Library/Preferences/Ardour5/templates/Virtual Playing Orchestra" Be sure to do a global replace, that path appears multiple times in th...

Re: No sound audible

Are you able to use Audacity to record audio from your mics? If that works, then my guess is that you don't have audio routed from your line-in to your line-out.

Re: Are There Any Audio Only Based Distributions?

I understand the time constraints with trying to take care of the little ones! If you are comfortable using a distro that isn't based on Ubuntu, then try AVLinux. Yes, it includes other stuff like video editing and such, but I don't think they are hurting anything unless you have a tiny hard drive. ...

EDIT Well, nothing seems to happen when I load that file with Fluidsynth.

there is a sfz file... I don't know how I missed it :x thanks

Fluidsynth will only load sf2 soundfonts, not sfz.

Re: Distribute sf2

Are you recording the samples by playing the synthesizer, or "ripping" samples from the synth's ROM?

Re: Orchestra Template Test

As a side note, one thing I forgot to mention last time is that your template has hardcoded paths to a local folder on your machine for the "template-dir" property, and that applies to all tracks: I thought this was normal and harmless (I see the same in another template I have installed)...

Re: GOing round in circles with Wine

Are you using the wine stable repo? Find instructions about how to use it here: https://www.tecmint.com/install-wine-in-linux

That might be less trouble than trying to install the wine that comes from the Mint repo.

Re: Stickers!

Today I was surprised to get an envelope in the mail shipped from "Nederland". I observed a flagrant violation of privacy: somewhere en route it had been torn open and then clumsily taped shut. Inside I found a whole pile of these stickers! Who else wants one of these?

Re: Orchestra Template Test

The fact that I have no idea what a "stem export" is shows how much a of a newbie I still really am Hmm, it turns out that Ardour doesn't support midi export: https://discourse.ardour.org/t/midi-export/86618 Still, you might be able to do it, since midi regions are stored as midi files. D...

Oooh, I really like Snarky Puppy. If you want to collaborate on some kind of neo-jazz music like that, I can record a clarinet track for you, and it would be fun to try some of the synth stuff as well.

Re: Orchestra Template Test

I'll do that later tonight, thanks for the heads up! I hoped it might be just a couple of tweaks I could apply to the existing project, but looking at the diff there's a ton of changes (I guess IDs changed and so that impacted the whole document) so I'll have to start from scratch :mrgreen: Underst...

Re: Orchestra Template Test

Rainmak3r, I just made a few more tweaks to the template, could you try it out and let me know what you think? Mostly it's adjusting stage presence. In particular, it has been hard to get that super-close mic trumpet sample to sit well with the other brass, so I'm experimenting with the free edition...

Re: Daydreaming Waltz (classical)

Wow, I like the composition a lot. I understand how it is to have something in your head forever, and then finally get it down and after going over it about a hundred times it just doesn't have the same magic anymore. I'm surprised at how well it worked to import the midi tracks from your MuseScore ...
